Engineering Research

Flyers go to Incredible Heights — and so Does our Research

As the No. 1 Catholic university in the nation for sponsored engineering research and development, we are dedicated to the common good. Our quest? To turn discovery into application — and engineer solutions to the most vital problems abroad and at home.

Whether we’re creating a computer chip that can think for itselfsafeguarding pipelines or powering the Mars 2020 Rover, we work in the space between inspiration and impact — and bring great ideas to life.

This innovative spirit has led to double digit growth in research volume for the past four years, with $150 million in sponsored research last year— and $1 billion in sponsored research contracts currently underway.

In addition, we’re:

  • No. 1 nationally for federally sponsored materials R&D
  • No. 1 Catholic university for sponsored engineering R&D
  • No. 1 in Ohio for sponsored materials R&D
